Theta Digital also announced two new programs designed to allow owners of previous generations of the Casablanca preamp/processor to keep their components up-to-date.

The first program adds 3 new circuit boards, a new power supply and new operating system to the Casablanca III and brings it fully to Casablanca III HD status. MSRP for the HD upgrade is $4,995.00.

The second program offers owners of the Casablanca I or II, previous generations of the Theta Digital preamp/processor, a trade-in allowance of up to $5,000 applied to the purchase of the new Casablanca III HD.
